Discovery: Welcome

Welcome to Discovery











Welcome to Discovery - the library's new search tool.

The Library has changed to a new, integrated system! Why did we make the change? For many of the same reasons that typically motivate software changes: enhanced functionality, budget considerations, operational efficiency, and interoperability with other systems. This new software has some features that will improve the user experience, but as with any such change, some of the functionality you’re used to may be in a different place and sometimes no longer available, but there is new functionality too. We look forward to helping you become acquainted with some of these new features, answer any of your questions, and benefit from your feedback.

Discovery combines the search features of our previous tool, Summon, and the Library Catalog into one easy to search interface. You will notice fewer options on the tabbed box on the library page because the features are combined into one tool.

To get started, enter your search term in the box on the library homepage to find Journal Articles, Books (ebooks and print), Journals, Videos, Open Access materials and much much more.

To search for a specific journal or book in the library catalogue, enter the title in the search box on the library homepage.

Discovery also searches library catalogues across the world!
